This gorgeous kilim from Black Sea region of Turkey is made with pure organic hemp often “tweeded” with more hemp in different colors.
This one is off white and taupe pure hemp with several very faded cicim symbols in red, green and blue. The sides are hand stitched in a pale celadon green. The carpet has a small spattering of red paint. See pics. Pretty and clean.... it is rare to find one piece rather than several pieces sewn together.
Pure hemp is cool to the touch and underfoot.
Actual size is 5’7”x10’3”
It has been professionally washed, blocked , starched and restored.
Free shipping applies to lower 48 states only.
*The beauty of these pieces is in their authenticity. They are not perfect in their shape or edges. They often have patches done by the weavers which we leave as it adds to the story of the rug. Some of them have apricot stains as they were often used to carry the fruit from orchard to home.This look is not for everybody. It will appeal to people who like imperfection or wabi sabi...
